Research focus and goals
Within UAV communications research theme, we study the radio connectivity of UAVs with specific emphasis on getting the UAVs and other flying objects connected to the mobile networks. The work covers optimizing the radio access methods, radio protocols as well as networks deployments to simultaneously serve both UAVs as well as the more ordinary devices on the ground through the same network. Additionally, the use of UAVs as flying base-stations is studied. Finally we also study communication and sensing methods for dense drone swarms.
